IN TWO VOLUMES

VOL. 1

As rises on night's jewelled brow
Some orb supremely bright,
So Washington, from dawn to day,
Emerges on our sight.
From gloomy depths of endless pines,
From privacy of snow;
Where milder peaks o'ertook the vales,
Where miler breezes blow;
From doubtful dawn to daylight,
From savagery to state,
She comes to prove the triumph
Of those who watch and wait.
